Here are some of the most interesting trends of the year:
- Stuck with long waits when you got to the doctor? If you live in Fort Myers, Fla., your wait time is longer than anywhere else in the country, according to the ZocDoc data. (Do yourself a favor and move to Seattle—home of the nation's shortest wait times.)
- The most sought after time slot? Overall, it's Tuesday at 10 a.m. or 2 p.m. But interestingly, men and women have very different habits here: the most popular appointment day for men is Friday, while women's most popular day is Monday.
- For a speedy visit, maybe you should wait until… Friday, the least popular appointment day.
- The most proactive cities for preventive appointments. The residents of Austin, Texas, lead the rankings in the number of annual patient visits.
